Open Call Focus on Innovative MedTech using Nanotechnology

Start-ups / SMEs! Are you working on innovative medical products using nanotechnology? This is your call for development and marketing solutions!

Last week took place the SAFE-N-MEDTECH Open Call on line info session with the idea to present the open call with a bit more detail. A few presentations and specially a time for questions and answers were organized by Anaïs Le Corber, Network Manager of CEBERG, the council of European Bioregions, partner of the project.

The webinar was recorded and it is available here:

First of all, Angel del Pozo, Coordinator of the SAFE-N-MEDTECH, gave an insight of the project.

Then, Miguel Duarte from IMM (Portugal), the business development partner of the project, presented the services offered

After him, Qwentin Pankhurst, chairman of Resonant Circuits Ltd. explained his experience as user, having a tase case in the project.

Finaly, before the space for questions and answers, Ibane Abasolo, Scientific Director of NANBIOSIS U20, from CIBER-BBN and Vall D’Hebron Institute Research in Barcelona, presented with more detail the clinical validation services available in this open call.

SAFE-N-MEDTECH OITB  Safety testing in the life cycle of nanotechnology-enabled medical technologies for health is a H2020 project with the objective of providing services and support to companies and other organizations for accelerating the development and commercialization of innovative MedTech solutions based on nano-enabled technology.

How can this call suit you?

Qwentin Pankhurst explained his experience: “As a medtech start-up we do not have the external experience to cover all the safety related aspects of product development for MDR compliance, we needed clear uncomplicated advance and solutions, ideally we needed a “one-stop-shop”…

“Even if a client accesses only a part of the offering, the fact that the OITB is seeking to cover the entire pathway from design input to clinical testing is important as it underpins a connected-thinking approach.”

Submission deadline: March 21st 2022, 23:59 CET

The time line: It is espected that the evaluation process will take around one month. Then NDAs will be signed before starting the work, which could be carried during one year approximatly.

The technology assesment area of the SAFE-N-MEDTECH OITB well carry out a first examitanion toguether with the applicant of the available data, the quality of the data, the needs of the product an other relevant aspects. A technology assitant proposal will ve developed and the services needed will be defined toguether with the client.

NANBIOSIS keeps working in SAFE-N-MEDTECH!

On March 10-12 a two-day meeting between representatives of NANBIOSIS units, took place at the  Jesús Usón Minimum Invasive Surgery Center (CCMIJU), in Cáceres, to plan the work to be done in the coming months and carry out some tests within the framework of the European project Safe-N-MedTech.

Several units of the ICTS NANBIOSIS will carry out some of the F/Q, in vivo and in vitro characterizations applied to the test cases of the project. NANBIOSIS is actively involved and works in close collaboration with the four Test Case Developers: Stryker, RCL, HELIA Biomonitoring and TECNAN. Additionally, NANBIOSIS is the leader of WP3 Preclinical Research in nano enabled MTs.

The Safe-N-MedTech European Project will create an open innovation platform that accelerates the development of medical devices based on nanotechnologies. The project counts with 28 partners coordinated by TECNAN (Navarre, Spain), together with BIOKERALTY, the research branch of the global health companies Keralty. The new project is part of the Open Innovation Test Bed initiative (OITB) launched by the European Commission with the aim of accelerating the development of medical devices based on nanotechnologies in Europe and abroad. The project has a European funding of 15 million euros.

We expect that the Safe-N-MedTech test bed will help to accelerate the development nanotechnology based medical technologies products and services for future applications in clinical practice.

Safe-N-Medtech kicks off in Bilbao

The Safe-N-MedTech European Project kcks off in Bibao to create an open innovation platform that accelerates the development of medical devices based on nanotechnologies.

During 2 and 3 of May took place in Bilbao, at the University of the Basque Country, the kick off meeting of the European project Safe-N-Medtech organized by Osteba, the HTA Unit of the Ministry of Health of the Basque Country (Spain) in collaboration with BIOPRAXIS-BIOKERALTY.

Safe-N-Medtech, counts with 28 partnerts coordinated by TECNAN (Navarran company with great experience in Nano products), together with BIOPRAXIS-BIOKERALTY, the research branch of the global health companies Keralty and Praxis. The new project is part of the Open Innovation Test Bed initiative (OITB) launched by the European Commission with the aim of accelerating the development of medical devices based on nanotechnologies in Europe and abroad. The project has a European funding of 15 million euros.

CIBER-BBN participates as a partner in the Safe-N-Medtech throught its Scientific Infraestructure, the ICTS NANBIOSISSeveral units of NANBIOSIS from CIBER-BBN and JUMISC wiil carry out some of the F/Q, in vivo and in vitro characterizations applied to pilot test cases, NANBIOSIS is the leader of WP3 Preclinical Research in nano-enabled MTs.

Society and clinical practice raise a growing demand for new biomaterials, ICTs, medical devices and in vitro diagnostics (Medical Technologies-MTs) based on micro and nanotechnologies. In addition to the challenge of time, new technologies are subject to other pressing factors, such as qualification, regulation, cost, biocompatibility and the need to be applicable throughout the world. Medical devices based on nanotechnologies can be applied in almost all medical areas, with an important presence in areas such as cancer, regenerative medicine, advanced therapies, neurology, cardiology, orthopedics and dentistry.

The initiative aims to build an open innovation platform to offer companies and reference laboratories the capabilities, knowledge, networks and services necessary for the development, testing, evaluation, improvement and exploitation of the market of medical devices and diagnostic based in nanotechnology. This platform will offer a multidisciplinary and market-oriented innovation approach for SMEs, health care providers and industries, accelerating the transfer to the market of these new medical devices. During the first years of project work, the partners will develop their services and test them in different case studies, so that, Safe-N-Medtech OITB can become a sustainable and competitive services platform for companies to accelerate their developments according to the necessary regulatory requirements and ensure the safety and effectiveness of their medical devices based on nanotechnologies.
